In 2010, the Volvo Group became the world’s first manufacturer in the automotive industry to join the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF) Climate Savers Program. The Volvo Group has thereby committed to even more ambitious emission targets for greenhouse gases than previously. The Volvo Group’s truck companies have undertaken to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from vehicles manufactured between 2009 and 2014 by 13 million tons. In 2011 it was agreed that Volvo Construction Equipment and Volvo Bus should join the WWF Climate Savers program. The partnership was launched during a ceremony in February 2012 in China.
